Boarding is a wonderful adventure in fun and independence. Children embrace opportunities to spend more time with their friends and experience new activities. Prep is supervised and followed by dinner. After dinner activities such as hide and seek, swimming and den building take place at school, with other activities such as ringo-ing, climbing and scuba diving taking place off site. Boarding is so popular that over the last two years over 10% of our children have been a part of the boarding community.

Boarding is a very attractive option for our parents as well as an alternative to a babysitter at home, with Friday nights being particularly popular.

St Peter’s offers a flexi-boarding option, as well as weekly boarding, for children in Year 3 and above.

Welcome to the Boarding House
The boarding house at St Peter’s is often full to capacity with flexi-boarders because of the exciting evening activities on offer. Activities include:

  • ringoing on the estuary
  • iBounce trampolining

  • scuba diving and platform diving experiences
  • camp fire and marshmallows
  • secret location night hikes

  • and much more…

In whatever capacity your child becomes part of the boarding community at St Peter’s, the whole experience will play an invaluable part in their education and wider personal development.
